      Yes, that is how I came to realise that there was another family member! I did not know about.
      The question is What happened to him from that Baptism entry?
      I have only recently discovered a Richard George Toovey that lived in South Australia , married in Victoria (1950) and died 1887.
      Is this the same person..
      Judith, I have now discounted that 1841 census entry where 3 Toovey pupils were at Bushey Grove House in Hertfordshire.
      The Edward mentioned actually died in 1833 and no Frederick in the family.
      I am presently trying Toovey residents in Adelaide to see if any one has done any research.
      Thanks Elaine for your research.
      As for shipping an interesting connection that has me now thinking. Smallman Toovey who is a brother to Richard Duppa Toovey. Smallman was a ships Master and used to sail between England, New Zealand and Australia around the 1850's.
      Haven't found any shipping lists though. Smallman also invented some magic navigation instrument.
      Appreciate your work and time spent.

        Elaine, The name Gibbs seems to be used as second Christian names. I think this comes about as one of Smallman Toovey daughters married a wealthy Businessman from London in abt 1815. His name was Gibbs.
        Tooveys have a history of doing that over the generations.
        example, Lingwood, Duppa, Smallman, Gibbs etc
